Dacorum residents have until 23 November to make sure their details are correct, and included on the Electoral Register, so that they're entitled to vote.
Since electoral registration forms were sent out in early September 93% of households have confirmed their details by post, internet, phone call or text. This means there are over 4,000 households in the Borough that are not registered. Only those who are on the electoral register will be eligible to vote in the next general election or in any local by-elections.
Households with no changes of details from last year can re-register in minutes on-line, by text or by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
* visit www.registerbyinternet.com/dacorum and follow the simple instructions.
* Text 80212.(Charges will be same as your provider's standard rate)
* Call freephone 0800 197 8620.
When using these automated services you will be prompted to confirm your household details using the unique security code printed on the form.
Young people aged 16 or 17 who will be 18 by 30 November 2010 should also be added to this year's register. They will be able to vote at elections once they have turned eighteen.
As well as being your ticket to vote, being on the electoral register is important for anyone seeking to get finance or credit. The electoral register is one of the first checks made by a credit reference agency in reviewing applications for finance. Households are also required by law to return their electoral registration forms and could face fines of up to £1000 if they don’t.
Those who reply by 23 November will appear on the next Register of Electors, which will be published on 1 December 2009. From that date residents can inspect the full version of the register to check their details.
